Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This companion book to What's Your Favorite Animal? (2014) and What's Your Favorite Color? (2017) features words and pictures by 15 accomplished illustrators, each introducing a favorite bug on a large double-page spread. As long as a paragraph or as short as a sentence, the accompanying prose or verse text might include fascinating facts, vivid memories, or true confessions about insects, such as Carle's To tell you the truth, I have not always cared for caterpillars, followed by the origin story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar (1969). Featuring wonderfully varied and often striking images, the next 14 spreads display the work of Denise Fleming, Teagan White, Beth Krommes, Maggie Rudy, Scott Magoon, Molly Idle, Ekua Holmes, Tim Hopgood, Kenard Pak, Brendan Wenzel, Britta Teckentrup, Eric Fan, Eugene Yelchin, and Joey Chou, who bring their own varied styles, media, and viewpoints to the theme. The closing pages include a paragraph introducing each artist along with a childhood photo. Royalties will be donated to the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. A handsome volume.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2010 Booklist"
